Hi card makers, my share today is the Stampin Up Garden In Bloom and the Floating Ink Technique.
Yes, that’s the technique this month for out Totally Techniques group yeah – I LOVE this technique.
I have done this technique many times with the Fifth Avenue Floral Set from Stampin UP a few years back (you can see the video here) and it was time to replay it with a new set, so I chose Garden in Bloom, the flowers are perfect for this technique don’t you think? Actually any large outline image will work, so just grab one!.
and with the glorious color blends you can get with the floating ink, it kind of looks like the tie dyed look – which is totally on trend right now!…just check out Michaels…..I’m trying to decide if I’m too old to wear a tie dyed shirt – I think NOT!…haha…
I may have forgotten to mention that “shades are required” to read this blog post today, haha……and just so you can play along and get as inky as I did, here is a video for you,
